Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Tony Hawks!

Tony Hawks - Pro Skater 4 have you guessed it yet? Yeah, it’s the fourth in the season of Tony Hawk games developed by Neversoft (RIP Neversoft). The Tony Hawks series of the skateboarding games which were always great, and you could just get lost in playing these games, it’s just so enjoyable.

Skateboarding doesn’t need a story

Unlike the previous three Pro Skater games, the fourth Tony Hawk - Pro Skater takes away the career mode and the time events. Adding more focus to a free play mode without the time events taking inspiration from the past of Tony Hawk - Pro Skater games with all having a free mode but the fourth game focuses more on the free mode. It gives you more freedom to explore the different levels rather than on being timed, this game is set around freedom. You progress through the game by taking on tasks from NPCs which are sometimes timed. That’s how you progress through the different levels of the game this game doesn’t have a proper story, it’s just pure gameplay through and through.

Tony Hawk doesn’t need graphics

The graphics are of a classic PS1 game, one of the classic games of the PS1 era. The graphics were nothing special, but it was the gameplay of Tony Hawk, a Pro Skater, which is the massive draw to this game. It was, weirdly, the first game to have an animal in it! If you are looking for an action-packed skateboarding game, you should play Tony Hawk - Pro Skater 4 and watch out for the elephant.

IT HAS GAMEPLAY

This is definitely the reason why you buy Tony Hawk - Pro Skater 4, it’s probably one of the best skateboarding games. This is heavily based on the gameplay due to the simpleness and depth. The simpleness as you simply go around skateboarding and pulling tricks, it’s that simple. The depth comes with the detail in the different skills you can pull off within the game, its combination of both depth in the skateboarding sport but the simpleness of not over complicating it. It has many different areas from college to the London Zoo adding a lot of variety to the areas making it very hard to get bored as you can change locations often.

It’s a pro

The game has a classic look and adds some animals to the mix which wasn't needed but added a slight bit more fun to a great game. The graphics of the game are nothing special, but the gameplay and the free roam mode took the game to new heights. The variety of locations as well as the enjoyment of the game makes the experience more enjoyable with more locations to show off your skills.

Game Reviews

Activision O2 November 2002--OK, so now we're up to the fourth title in the venerable Tony Hawk series, and we're pretty sure you are thinking the same thing we were before we saw the game--what the heck is left for developer Neversoft to do with this one? Well, a good lot, thankfully.

For starters, they've added a new Career mode that offers a wealth of playability. You skate around in massive areas with no time limit and interact with people, not unlike your standard role-playing game. For example, talk to a photographer and he'll ask you to pull off some tricks for a shoot. Or race across town to warn your skater buddies that a cop is on his way over to bust their asses.

And get this: If you get bored with the skating, you can easily jump into one of the included minigames, such as a fully playable match of tennis or basketball! Of course, the PlayStation 2 version will feature online play. As for the Xbox or GC games? Well, Neversoft's keeping quiet so far.

Not surprising, since Microsoft and Nintendo don't have any solid online plans yet.
